It will be a very exciting start to the fall semester for freshmen who attend Centenary College.

Next year the entire freshman class will embark on a journey to Paris.

The students will take an immersive study course that will include 8 to 10 days of learning about the rich history of Centenary and Louisiana which have cultural, educational and governmental roots in France.

Each course will be taught by a Centenary faculty member and the trip will be supervised by Centenary staff.

Centenary College is the first in the nation to send an entire class to study in another country.

William Arceneaux, President of the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, said "This unprecedented decision to send the entire freshman class to Parish will place the college in the international spotlight and result in bringing much-needed attention to Louisiana and its efforts to promote its French language heritage."

Centenary's new immersive study segments will provide students with the opportunity to earn up to 40 credit hours a year.  They will also be able to spend more time on activities like international study and global service or get a jump start on graduate studies and still complete their Bachelor's within four years.
